Nylon Christian Red Cross 3x5 Flag

We've added a new red cross Christian flag. 3 feet x 5 feet and made of quality nylon. Very durable so you can hang in outside or inside. It comes with two metal grommets for easy hanging.

Just a little lesson in the history of this flag:

The Christian Flag was first conceived on September 26, 1897, at Brighton Chapel on Coney Island in Brooklyn, NY in the United States. The superintendent of a Sunday school, Charles C. Overton, gave an impromptu lecture to the gathered students, because the scheduled speaker had failed to arrive for the event. He gave a speech asking the students what a flag representing Christianity would look like. Overton thought about his improvised speech for many years afterward. In 1907, he and Ralph Diffendorfer, secretary of the Methodist Young People's Missionary Movement, designed and began promoting the flag.

The ground is white, representing peace, purity and innocence. In the upper corner is a blue square, the color of the unclouded sky, emblematic of heaven, the home of the Christian; also a symbol of faith and trust. in the center of the blue is the cross, the ensign and chosen symbol of Christianity: the cross is red, typical of Christ's blood.

This flag is as successful as it is known and accepted by Christians. The designation 'Christian Flag' does not apply to its acceptance but to its message. This flag is over-denominational and wants to symbolize the Christian faith, the faithfulness for Christ and represent all Christian believers. This was also the intention of its creator. Therefore it was called 'Christian Flag' from the beginning, and this designation has been accepted wherever this flag was shown.
